Annotation: The article is devoted to the study of the linguocultural context of the destructive elements of post-folklore as part of the cacosphere. The author considers post-folklore as a form of folkish lore, implemented outside the original context and receiving modern interpretations. Based on the analysis of scientific literature, post-folklore texts collected by the author, and texts freely available on the Internet, the author reasonably proves that the destructive elements of post-folklore include the invective vocabulary itself, the context it creates, the utterance of invective vocabulary, understood as an action, and passive acceptance this vocabulary. The author considers the term invective vocabulary to be the most general due to its retaining of the original meaning (attacks) in the sense of verbal aggression, and conveying of the intention of committing an action condemned by others. In conclusion, the article concludes that the destructive elements of post-folklore have a negative impact on the individual and the sociocultural space as a whole; however, it is not always possible to determine with certainty to what extent society understands and is aware of the influence of certain elements on its culture and communication, not to mention the broader impact. The means of overcoming the destructive influence of post-folklore elements is the responsibility of each person for its words and actions in the process of communication.
Keywords: post-folklore, cacosphere, invective vocabulary, verbal (speech) aggression, destructive elements, linguocultural context, speech interaction.
